REMOTE LEARNING

HOME LEARNING WITH SEESAW DURING SCHOOL CLOSURES

As a result of the school closures due to coronavirus we used Seesaw for learning at home. We set Seesaw learning activities each week and children were able to logon online at home to access their work. Seesaw helps us work together to provide students with meaningful learning experiences.

We’ll continue to use Seesaw to share learning activities and resources, capture your child’s learning, and communicate about student progress and needs.  We will be able to give feedback and next steps, enabling you and your child to see their progress.

Below are steps for setting up Seesaw at home and additional resources to help you support your child.

CHILDREN IN P567

If your child is in P567 they can already sign on to their class Seesaw independently at home using their glow google login: gw’****’@glow.sch.uk and password

CHILDREN BELOW P567

Set up your child in the Seesaw Class App:

  1. For devices like tablets or phones, download the Seesaw Class App-YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THE CURRENT VERSION FOR THE CODES TO WORK

For laptop or desktop computers, go to app.seesaw.me

  1. Click I’m a Student
  2. We have provided home learning codes in a PDF : Enter the text code or scan the QR code
  3. These codes should be considered as passwords and are unique to your child and should not be shared with others.  They enable access to your child’s learning journal.

If you have more than one child in the family sharing a device they will each need to log in separately to their Seesaw account and log out again when finished.

You and your child will now be ready for learning online.

Additional resources:

If you have any questions, please feel free to message your teacher on Seesaw.

Thank you for your support with your child’s learning.

MORE ABOUT SEESAW

Seesaw is a simple way for teachers and students to record and share what’s happening in the classroom.

Seesaw gives students a place to document their learning, be creative and learn how to use technology.

Each student gets their own journal and will add things to it, like photos, videos, drawings, or notes.

When there are new Seesaw posts, families can be notified via app notification, email or SMS.

Parents are only notified about their own child’s work, and all data is safe and secure.
